Poor execution, poor quality

Pros: cheap
Cons: cheap, poor construction, feels and looks cheap, user interface is just stupid
"It is a shame National Geographic are putting their name on such a poor product.
After a lot of fiddling (and being close to the point of returning it) i discovered that all the connectors in the battery compartment are so sloppy that the electrical connections are not being made. I had to bend metal parts so that the connections stick. Really bad.
The user interface is awful. I bought this with the idea of teaching my son to plot temperatures (the daily maximums and mins are stored by the device). But the mechanism for retrieving them is beyond ridiculous - one has to open the back and individually press tiny up/down buttons for year, month, day separately. Then one has to start all over again (year, month, day) to get the next day of history and so on. I gave up completely."

Excellent Value and Quality

"I have a strong belief that investing in quality items will result in things working properly and having them longer. Sure, it is nice to get “deals” too but if the item is not good quality then I am wasting my money and time. At Costco, I get quality AND deals. I was searching for a new outside thermometer when I came across this product. I decided to purchase it because it was excellent value, attractive, unique and I would be able to easily return it if needed. I have shopped Costco online for a few years now and am pleased to report that I have never returned an online item...and this product is no exception. I’m very pleased with it!"
